Landslide in Rwanda Leaves Thousands Homeless
After a torrential downpour this weekend, widespread flooding sparked a landslide in Rwanda, killing at least 53 people and leaving thousands homeless. Officials say the northern Gakenke district has been the hardest hit with at least 34 deaths, many of which are children. The mountainous central African country is prone to landslides, but the government has moved people out of designated “high risk” areas in recent years.
